GHRSST Level 4 K10_SST Global 10 km Analyzed Sea Surface Temperature from Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVO) in GDS2.0 (GDS versions 1 and 2)

This is a Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) Level 4 sea surface temperature (SST) analysis dataset produced daily on an operational basis by the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVO) on a global 0.1x0.1 degree grid. The K10 (NAVO 10-km gridded SST analyzed product) L4 analysis uses SST observations from the following instruments: Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS), and Spinning Enhanced Visible and InfraRed Imager (SEVIRI). The AVHRR data for this comes from the MetOp-A, MetOp-B, and NOAA-19 satellites; VIIRS data is sourced from the Suomi_NPP satellite; SEVIRI data comes from the Meteosat-8 and -11 satellites. The age (time-lag), reliability, and resolution of the data are used in the weighted average with the analysis tuned to represent SST at a reference depth of 1-meter. Input data from the AVHRR Pathfinder 9km climatology dataset (1985-1999) is used when no new satellite SST retrievals are available after 34 days. Comparing with its predecessor (DOI: ), this updated dataset has no major changes in Level-4 interpolated K10 algorithm, except for using different satellite instrument data, and updating metadata and file format. The major updates include: (a) updated and enhanced the granule-level metadata information, (b) converted the SST file from GHRSST Data Specification (GDS) v1.0 to v2.0, (c) added the sea_ice_fraction variable to the product, and (d) updated the filename convention to reflect compliance with GDS v2.0.
